Ok so I meant to post this like forever ago, but I just totally forgot!
Naturally, it took us some time to get bins unpacked and all our, lets face it - junk, sorted through, but it is all beginning to come together. Honestly, even in the midst of the mess, I have still loved being here. It feels so bright and so... us. Because we have so much more room, and our piles of unpacked stuff could go virtually unnoticed, the flame of motivation was not burning as bright as it should have been, I must, sheepishly, admit; The new TV hasn't helped matters either. However, nothing motivates the unorganized like the promise of house guests :)
I am thankful that plans were made for a mere 2 weeks after move in day. Giving us a deadline and a reason for getting the place together!
Here is a little tour of most of the apartment. Sorry that the lighting is really not awesome.
This is what you see when you first walk in.
This is the office. It is seen to the right when you walk in. We're going to put the pipe shelf on that blank wall eventually.
To the left of the living area is the start of the kitchen. This is the dining area and the door to our bedroom. This is also where my herb garden lives now that we don't have any out door space. Right above the garden is a big rectangular sky light that really illuminates the apartment for most of the day. It is so nice to have all of that natural light streaming in; It is one of my favorite parts of the apartment!
Kitchen. I took a panorama shot, so that is why the floor looks funny. The white door leads to the laundry room. The kitchen table is at the bottom right of the picture, obviously unseen. And, to help orient you, the living area is to the left. That white Collumn is the start of the door way.
This is the laundry room. There is so much extra room in here, so we built a shelf and use it for extra storage.
This is the master bedroom; Through the door by the kitchen table.
This is the bathroom (behind the couch, to the right of the master bedroom) We use it as the master bath.
This is the built-in. Still trying to figure out how to use it and not have it look messy...
The shower across from the sink. It was hard to take pictures in there.
This is the guest room and guest bathroom. (Behind the couch to the right) another panorama shot.
